Located in beautiful Bend, Oregon, Deschutes Brewery overlooks the wild and scenic Deschutes River. It's home base to our adventurous, award-winning lineup of pioneering beers. You're always welcome to drop in, sample our beers, tour the kettles and meet the beer-obsessed folks who tend them. You can also get an insider tip or two on how spend the day, a week or a lifetime in our high-desert home. Free Guided Tours depart from our tasting room, where you'll learn about the pride and cutting edge tools that define our take on brewing. Ambassadors explain the finer points of whole flower hops, Huppman kettles and the little things that matter. Plus, do bottles zipping through eye-popping lines of automated dexterity ever get old? We don't think so.Visit our Gift Shop on your way out for sips, swag and, well, more swag. Our tasting room doubles as a showroom for Deschutes branded hats, shirts, glasses, snowboards, golf balls, whatever. (If it moves, we stamp it.) It's the best place to score cool gear, not to mention a six-pack, case or 22 oz. bottle of our tasty brews.

We had a lot of fun on the tour with our 2 friends who live in town. The tour was pretty standard if you've been to other breweries, but they had a lot of different beers from what they distribute that were fun to try. We went on a Friday afternoon. Our friends had made tour reservations ahead of time.

There is a tap room integrated to a big gift shop. You can get 4 samples free. It’s not a place you want to spend lot of time but absolutely worth visiting. There is not much to do if you're not drinking beer. It’s easy to find and there’s parking space in front of the building. Great beer.

This was not one of our better stops although their restaurant in town was excellent. We eat there 4 times in two weeks.

As a local, I attend here regularly. I have often advocated we start a church on site. Seriously, this is a superb place to check out free beer samples after a run down Mt Bachelor. No you don't have to take the tour, although your appreciation of hops will be enhanced and the the display of Jubelale posters is impressive... More

The Deschutes Brewery Tour was one of the most informational I've ever been on. Our guide was very energetic and knowledgeable about the brewery. She took us behind the scenes and showed us the brewing equipment, bottling line and even a lab where they sample the beers. At the end everyone got to pick 4 beers to try. Very cool... More

If you are a lover of beer the Bend area is the place to vacation. There are so many breweries and brew pubs it would take you a week or longer to "safely" visit them all. The granddaddy is Deschutes who started in 1988. Thee is a reason they are successful and when you visit the brewery you will see... More

Stopped in to do a tasting of the beers that this well-known local brewer produces. We aslo wanted to take the tour but all tours for the rest of the day were sold out, so that was a let down. Be sure to reserve well ahead of time if you want the tour. Otherwise, we did the free tasting which... More

A very good tour that will provide you a great overlook at the beer making process and the measures Deschutes goes thru to lessen their impact on the environment. Do your planning ahead because if you plan top simply walk up and get a tour, you'll likely be disappointed. The tasting associated with the tour can be completely prior to... More

Our 45 minute tour was done by one of the most enthusiastic fun guides we have ever had. Learned a lot about the brew process and best of all the tour came with 4 free pours! Do not miss the black butte Porter!!!
